The memorial is in Remembrance of 152 Imperial Soldiers that lost their lives in and near Estcourt and Frere during the Boer War. The town featured very strongly during the siege of Ladysmith, and Genl, Sir. Redvers Buller had his Natal Headquarters here.

The memorial may be found at Alexandra St in Estcourt, near the Bushmans River. Google Earth co-ordinates are: 29° 0.405′ S,  29° 52.868′ E. Images of the plaques are available on request.
